Headteacher Receiving Check for First Toilet
In April of 2019, Nehemiah's Restoration was approached by one of the local area Chiefs of western Kenya. He requested our assistance with a school in his area of responsibility. The school he took us to, with almost 250 students in attendance, had no toilets of its' own. The students and teachers alike were forced to use the singular latrine at a neighboring church, which was quickly filling. At times the students would simply go in the bush. While the school had many other needs, the Chief and Headteacher both assured us that this was the greatest, as it posed a serious health threat to everyone at the school.
Thanks to the generous support of donors like you, we raised enough funds to build TWO six-stall toilets (one for the boys and one for the girls) and we couldn't be more grateful! As soon as the funds arrived, we got to work. Headteacher Helen has been extremely helpful and has facilitated the building of one six-stall toilet already! We are very thankful to have gotten to work with such a determined, self-sacrificing individual who made this first part of the project such a success!
Attached, you will see pictures of the process of building the first six-stall toilet, from the foundation, to the framing of the building, to Headteacher Helen receiving a check from our Founder and President Rob Bollinger, to finally, the completed structure.
Again, we would like to say thank you so very, very much for actively supporting the education of these children! Your gift has already ensured that these students will not miss any more school because of health related issues caused by the lack of a clean toilet.
